The only thing that is wrong with the defense is we are not pressuring the QB. Sitting back, although frustrating at times, is a great system when you get pressure on the QB because you force him into mistakes. Now, if we have to send the house to get pressure then we have to rely on our DBs to stay on the receivers and they aren't and never have been very good at that.
Let's see...Chris Carter is getting zero pressure from the QB's blindside, and Ryan Mundy is responsible for over-the-top coverage...[sarcasm]sounds like a perfect scenario for bump-and-run coverage!!![/sarcasm]

Polamalu: Steelers' scheme isn't the problem
Troy Polamalu gave a flat answer when asked if the Steelers' defense needed to change: "To be quite honest, this is a question that you guys ask us at this same point every single year since I've been here. We're not going to change. It's about how we execute and how we can win our one-on-one matchups. If we don't, it's nothing to do with the scheme of things. It's just that we're not performing."
He then laughed and added, "Maybe I ought to make a recording of that."
